Miniature Pinscher, 15 years

Next up is another miniature version of a full-size breed: the Miniature Pinscher. However, though its commonly believed that the Miniature Pinscher is a deliberately miniaturized Doberman Pinscher, that is not true—they are, in fact, a completely separate and much older breed.

Min Pins, as they’re commonly known, are alert and energetic, self-assured, and make great companions. This high-stepping dog breed requires a decent amount of exercise and don’t be surprised when it brings home little furry “presents” for you. This breed is an overall healthy one but the Min Pin’s teeth should be brushed often to maintain its health for its 15 years.
